    Google Play redesign and Babel chat branding surface on Google

    Google I/O may still be a solid month away, but folks on Mountain View’s social network are already stumbling across leaks and notifications hinting at what might be in store. Google Play’s 4.0 redesign, for instance, briefly appeared on a YouTube employee’s profile before being deleted, matching the holo-themed leak we saw last month. The update shows a landing page we didn’t see in the previous walkthrough, and includes a message introducing the redesign that promises to make it “easier to browse and discover new favorites.” Google’s rumored Babel chat rebranding is making the rounds too, apparently surfacing in Gmail when certain messages are moved to trash. Neither are surefire announcements for I/O, but the timing is about right. Skip on past the break for a screen grab of the Babel notification.

  • IRL: Moshi's Digits gloves and the Nokia Lumia 620 on Telus
    Welcome to IRL, an ongoing feature where we talk about the gadgets, apps and toys we’re using in real life and take a second look at products that already got the formal review treatment.

    Spring may have sprung two weeks ago, but believe us, it’s still winter somewhere. (Ed note: I’m typing this from underneath an NVIDIA snuggie — Dana.) In fact, Darren’s had a reason to test out some touchscreen-friendly gloves, even in his southerly state of North Carolina. Up north, our own Jon Fingas has been playing with the Lumia 620 on Canada’s Telus networks. No complaints from him about the 40-degree temps, though.

  • Fusion-io bumps its ioFX super-SSD to 1.6TB, announces HP Workstation Z integration

    Fusionio bumps its ioFX superSSD to 16TB, announces HP Workstation Z integration

    We have a feeling graphics artists are going to be begging their studios for Fusion-io‘s latest ioFX super-SSD. After receiving critical acclaim for its 460GB version, the company has today introduced a massively-speced 1.6TB variant at NAB. Despite the space increase, the new unit is not bigger than its older sibling. In related news, HP has also signed on to integrate ioFX into its HP Z 420, 620 and 820 all-in-ones, and it’ll also give current workstation owners the option to simply add the card to their existing machines. Fusion won’t be releasing any details about pricing for the 1.6TB ioFX just yet — that’ll remain under wraps until its released this summer. For now, movie makers can net the 460GB one for $2K (about $500 less that its release price). Full press release after the break.

  • Inhabitat's Week in Green: stair-climbing vacuum cleaner, carbon dioxide diapers and a real 3D-printed face

    Each week our friends at Inhabitat recap the week’s most interesting green developments and clean tech news for us — it’s the Week in Green.

    DNP Inhabitat's Week in Green TKTKTK

    Just a few short years ago, 3D printing seemed like science fiction; we could grasp its value, but we didn’t yet have the ability to harness its power and put it to good use. Now, we’re seeing the technology advance every day — and it’s opening up new possibilities in medical science and other fields. This week, we shared the story of one British man who received a new 3D-printed face that gave him a second chance at life. In an equally amazing story, scientists at the University of Notre Dame successfully 3D printed the entire skeleton of a living rat. California-based Signal Snowboards unveiled the world’s first 3D-printed snowboard this week. And desktop 3D printing and scanning is getting cheaper every day — Canadian company Matterform is developing a lightweight 3D scanner called the Photon that’s cheaper than a tablet.
